@John from FP -- I hear you! SBB is a real good in the world. It elevates. And for a few weeks I have been working at home Friday afternoons -- so I can turn up the volume and don't miss any SBB in transit. The perfect crime!

I love this song. I just looked it up and realised the Third World version was a cover and that this is the original, which must have come soon after the O'Jays great Backstabbers. I like this better than the Third World version. It's more nuanced and delicate.

I have to say I much prefer the Third World version of Now That We've Found Love.

hey mariano! agreed...I wasn't working or living there anymore, but I grew up with the VV and it was a sad day. It was such a pleasure back in the day.
  4:21pm P-90:

@Jett: apparently it started to come apart as they were “inspecting” it (for hidden contraband?) because the parts aren’t glued together. They assumed if it came apart so easily it must be made to be put back together easily, which it is not. The guy said he has his fingers crossed, but best case scenario is that it will settle back to its proper resonance after a number of WEEKS...

@Djsheliab this makes me wonder who the hell hired these jerks, I better just chill out before I write something else that will get me into a shitload of trouble

You've clearly run the numbers, @P-90!

I've gotten so bad about going to concerts, BUT I'm determined to see US Girls when they come around in a couple of months!
  4:37pm Jett:

Do you have anything off the upcoming Rumer album? I love her voice. Please play something.

Sheila - Give Christine and the Queens doing People, I've Been Sad a listen. Available on YouTube. Right up your alley.
  4:38pm Peter in Critical MASS:

Great show today, SB! How about some Sylvan Esso???
  4:38pm William Main:

For the valentine show Grace Slick's version of Triad.
Avatar 4:39pm Hoboken Jack:

Hello Sheila B! I've been driving around north Jersey, enjoying the program quite a lot!
Avatar 4:39pm djsheilab:

Bruce Francis Simpson—It was on my list for today and then I ran out of space. I will include it soon!
Avatar 4:40pm djsheilab:

Jett—I wasn't crazy about the new Rumer single hence my not playing it. But I'm excited to hear what the rest of the album is like.
Avatar 4:41pm ben abs:

@oscar, got tix for US Girls when they come to LDN, the show around 18 months ago was one of the best I ever did see. Also, scorpio here

This was one of the first "new" songs for me that I heard in your program. In SBB #2!
  4:43pm Eric from Lake Hiawatha:

Shelia B. The elixir of positive, the expanse of forward thinking, bless you.
  4:44pm Jett:

Wow, Tracy Rogers with Fleur De Lys! love it. Great track.
  4:44pm lp-cover-lover:

Hard to believe the song Baby is from 1966! Sounds very modern!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Carmichael:

Did Jethro Tull listen to this?!
Avatar 4:48pm djsheilab:

Carmichael—It's a cover of "Hey Mr. Holy Man" by Kiss Inc. from 1970. But I can't find a date for the Catherine Spaak cover. Probably soon after '70.

Thank you, Eric from Lake Hiawatha!
  4:59pm Jett:

"He's A Runner" might be my favorite track by Laura Nyro, if not it's near the top. Love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm Devin B.:

Just about everything by Nyro floors me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00pm Carmichael:

Good luck, Annie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Carmichael:

I had a chance to see Laura Nyro, but I was burned out from too many concerts. She passed away from cancer after that tour ....
  5:03pm Jett:

@Carmichael Sorry that you lost that opportunity. She was so amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Carmichael:

I adore her voice. Wedding Bell Blues just gives me the tingles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Cool Runnings:

Home Girrrrl Laura Nyro from the Bronx in da house!
  5:08pm P-90:

Also all-in for Laura Nyro

Normally I'm not so into this kind of music, but this is a killer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Passaic River Blues:

Pongo is a kuduro dance pop master! I love everything she's done and only know about her because of this show.

Thanks for sharing your faves, gang! Love knowing which records you are digging.
  5:21pm Frank's Brain:

Kuduro is the shizznit! Term is an adaptation from the Portuguese meaning "hard ass." Buraka Som Sistema very good too. Early Lisboa pioneers.

  5:27pm MetalInjun:

All this fantastic music...Thank You, Ms. B...pairs well with a Friday beer.
Avatar 5:27pm Dave Spice:

Pongo is playing for the BBC Radio 6 music festival in March so that will probably go out as a live show on UK radio and the internet stream. I'll check out the listings nearer the time and let you know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm Rob Kopp:

It will be hard to beat this set
  5:30pm karen eliot:

WFMU's own Eagles die-hard, Joe McG in the house!
Avatar 5:32pm Joe McG:

Sheila is very modest. I think she's watched the Eagles documentary at least 5 times!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Carmichael:

And Belock doesn't give you any crap, Joe??
Avatar 5:32pm djsheilab:

Admittedly, I thought the Eagles doc was excellent! Thank you for recommending it to me, Joe.
Avatar 5:33pm Joe McG:

@Carmichael: Why would he? He loves the Eagles, too, just like everyone around here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Carmichael:

Maybe it's just Alan Parsons he hates. I was extending his attitude ....
Avatar 5:34pm Joe McG:

@djsheilab: No problem! Next up you have to see the Rush documentary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Rob Kopp:

Yes, repeat the complete set #5
Avatar 5:36pm mariano:

That Rush documentary was great.

It would be wonderful if you would play Samuelle by Vanity from her solo debut album 'Wild Animal' on your Valentines Day show. Such a beautiful song
  5:40pm John from Florham park:

@djahekiab don’t know if it was your show, but there is a doc about Linda Ronstadt who has done so many styles of music, was very impressed with the DVD
